a rich artisan coffee history that began in 1912 in south melbourne
At Cottle Coffee, we are proud of our rich artisan coffee history that started in 1972. That year, a third generation coffee and tea merchant, Bruce Cottle, established Cottle Coffee in South Melbourne after taking over a coffee roastery that had been in existence since 1912.
His vision was simple: to be a world-class purveyor of the finest quality coffee by sourcing, roasting and blending the best green coffee beans from around the world. The tradition continues today with Bruce’s son, Richard Cottle, taking over the helm of the family business, which is into its fourth generation. Combining Cottle Coffee’s vast experience and multi-tiered history with an understanding for the constantly evolving coffee scene, Richard has added a café and retail outlet to the existing roastery.
As we have done for over 40 years, we continue to supply the best artisan coffee to cafes in Melbourne, throughout Australia & internationally so customers will always get the best cup. Additionally, customers can enjoy a taste of our best blends and premium single origin coffee beans lovingly small batch roasted on premise in South Melbourne, at home.
We are proud of our coffee. We love to drink lots of it every day. And we love to share it with others who love coffee.
